IMPACT World Tag Team Championship Match: Motor City Machine Guns (c) vs. The North (Ethan Page & Josh Alexander)

Alexander shoots Sabin into the ropes and takes him down with a shoulder tackle out of the gate. He tries again but Sabin slides through his legs, rolls to the apron and comes off the top – but Alexander catches him out of the air and drives him into the corner.

Shelley rushes the challengers but is caught by both of them. Page drops a knee from the second rope, Alexander hits a splash, and they dispose of him quickly, going right back to work on Chris Sabin. Page is 100% on his bulls**t tonight, mocking MCMG and hamming it up to the camera. Looks like “All Ego” has his confidence back!

Back from the final commercial break of the night. Shelley is in control for the first time, working a single leg crab on Josh Alexander. Page runs in to break it up, booting Sabin in the process. The Guns fight him off and send him to the floor, but Alexander attacks and The North go right back to their double team tactics.

Josh works the ankle and twists Shelley into a pretzel. In comes Page who bludgeons the champion with body blows and a running kick to the gut. Suplex attempt, Shelley fights back with knees to the head, but Page makes the blind tag and they crush him with back-to-back backbreakers. Nice.

Alexander rolls to the outside but is lit up by a PK from Chris Sabin. Hot tag made! He flies off the top rope, sending Page flying with a missile dropkick. Corner splash, followed by a suicide dive to take out Alexander on the floor again. Shelley returns, Sabin dropkicks Page into a Mic Check for a nearfall.

Shelley delivers heavy slaps to the side of the head and ears. Alexander hits the ring trying to make the save, but The North get caught with a double Sliced Bread #2. Sabin signals for the end. Spin kick. Spin kick from Shelley. Page comes out of nowhere with a huge lariat, clears the ring, hits a DDT but can’t put the Guns away. The frustration is hitting a boiling point.

Page catches Shelley in a small package as Alexander cuts off the save from his partner, but it’s still not enough. Alexander hoists up Shelley into a backbreaker, followed by a superkick from Page. Sabin out of nowhere with a springboard tornado DDT. Alexander destroys him with a rolling elbow. High-Low combo from  the champions. Stereo superkicks to Page. Neckbreaker/diving splash combo connects. 1… 2… 3.
